Workshops and Training


Grant Writing Workshop

I recently completed a workshop for the Arkansas Arts Council May 8th, 2018; the topic was Grantseeking: Research and Preparation. More than 70 participants attended to learn the basics of foundation research, preliminary preparation and the primary components of a proposal.

Additional workshops are being planned in the Little Rock area in September as well as around the state later; the dates are being confirmed. Contact me if you’re interested in attending.

Cell: 501-804-8190.

Topics for the workshop included:

 Determine if your organization is “grant ready
 Strengthen Your Foundation Research
 How to Interpret and Manage Search Results
 Understand the Basic Components of a Grant Application
